Students and teachers of Scoil Mhuire agus Ide, Newcastle West took to the catwalk for their annual Valentine’s fashion show and it was a truly glamorous evening.

Scoil Mhuire agus Íde is a lay-owned co-educational Voluntary Catholic Secondary School and was formed in 1992 following the amalgamation of Scoil Mhuire, a convent secondary school run by the Sisters of Mercy and St. Ita’s Secondary School for boys.

The event returned to the school grounds for a second year running. The previous six years they held it in a local hotel but returned to hold it in the school again this year as they are always striving to make the best use of their top class resources. This year, in particular, they made great efforts to show the individuality of the students, with an artistic backdrop being designed for the big night. It was not only a night of high fashion but also a night of musical excellence with many performances from the talented Transition Years being featured throughout the night’s lineup.

As always, they had a great organisational team behind them consisting of hard-working and dedicated teachers, Ms Harris, Ms Kennedy and Ms Thompson and all the staff.

With their biggest number of Transition Year students to date, there was no shortage of models for the local shops and boutiques to exhibit their spring collections. The local businesses have always been extremely supportive of them, helping them out with the preparations for the Scoil Mhuire agus Ide Fashion Show any way they could. All funds that are raised on the night went towards future Transition Year projects.
